Hi Sylvia Welcome to CAF! This is a very good question. I’d be happy to share my own experience with trust in God.
Over the past 5 years, Our Merciful and Patient Lord Jesus… has labored with me, to teach me that total trust in Him… is a treasure beyond our understanding. Through His Grace and Mercy, I have made strides… although, I’m still very much… a work in progress.
I think that’s kind of how it is, with everyone. We are all “works in progress”.
My own experience, is that Our Lord has taught me to lean on Him… in everything… through being abandoned (literally) by most of my family. We were “talked into” moving 2,000 miles from our home in California… to the east coast. There were some major difficulties, tragedies within my family… which ended in my relatives leaving us here alone, and returning to California. I was left alone, with our elderly mother… who suffers from Alzheimers.
At first… I was angry. But over time, this “abandonment” led to our return to the Church; and to immense graces from Our Good Lord, Jesus. I must also mention here… the favors which we received, through the intercession of Our Lady.
I now consider myself to be extremely blessed in all of this. He is showing me… that trust in Him (even in the little decisions)… is not only a good thing… but a necessary thing.
I hope that this helps, in some way. God bless.
